Well, at least you manned up and told us. Don't feel bad, we've all made mistakes like this. Just one of those 'Doh!' moments. :)

Ah, yes but surely it's your wife's fault for not noticing it when she was helping to bleed the system.

Terry,
What method did you use to make your cross member removable? Perhaps a picture or two?
Cheers,
Colin.

Sump leak is worse so I will do that next!
Especially now I have my removable cross member!

Thanks Greg and Richard. It's funny I had a suspicion it was my wife's fault!

Colin, picture as below, there's a post from Rohan on how to do it. Basically drill the bolt holes first and then carefully grind out the welds. Treat everything and bolt up. I think you can weld extra pieces in the end.
